Dear Oleg.

This is just an idea. But the way the game is set up right now. The load outs for some of teh later planes seems to be needlessly complicated.

It seams to have started with the 110 (an amazing plane) but everytime I load up I have to wade thru two-to-three dozen loadouts that I, and I bet 98% of the players, never use.

I just think the game would be cleaner if was simplifed.

For example the F4U-1D

<UL TYPE=SQUARE>

<LI>Default

<LI>8 HVAR

<LI>8 HVAR + 2 154 gal. DT

<LI>8 AP HVAR

<LI>8 AP HVAR + 2 154 gal. DT

<LI>1 178 gal DT

<LI>1 178 gal DT + 2 154 gal. DT

<LI>8 HVAR + 1 178 gal DT + 2 154 gal. DT

<LI>8 AP HVAR + 1 178 gal DT + 2 154 gal. DT

<LI>8 HVAR + 1 178 gal DT

<LI>2 Napalm + 1 178 gal DT

<LI>8 HVAR + 2 Napalm + 1 178 gal DT

<LI>8 AP HVAR + 2 Napalm + 1 178 gal DT

<LI>2 Tiny Tim + 1 178 gal DT

<LI>2 Tiny Tim + 8 HVAR

<LI>2 Tiny Tim + 8 AP HVAR

<LI>1 500lb. Bomb + 2 154 gal. DT

<LI>8 Hvar + 1 500lb. Bomb + 2 154 gal. DT

<LI>8 APHvar + 1 500lb. Bomb + 2 154 gal. DT

<LI>2 500lb. Bombs

<LI>8 Hvar + 2 500lb. Bombs

<LI>3 500lb. Bombs

<LI>8 HVAR + 3 500lb. Bombs

<LI>8 AP HVAR + 3 500lb. Bombs

I did notice that you have already left out a few possible combinations.

<UL TYPE=SQUARE>

<LI>8 APHvar + 1 178 gal DT

<LI>1 500lb. Bomb

<LI>2 Tiny Tim + 1 500lb. Bomb

<LI>1 2000lb. Bomb + 2 154 gal. DT

<LI> etc...

[/list]

Until we get a drag and drop load out, or more pull down menus for the different stations, it may be more user friendly to keep it simpler. For example.

<UL TYPE=SQUARE>

<LI>Default

<LI>1 178 gal DT

<LI>1 178 gal DT + 2 154 gal. DT

<LI>8 HVAR

<LI>8 HVAR + 2 154 gal. DT

<LI>8 AP HVAR + 2 154 gal. DT

As long as you are taking bombs may as well take some rockets. Why take up 2 500lbs bombs when you can take 3?

As for the other planes, who is realy ever going to take off in a A10 with only two 100lb.(40kg) bombs? Anyway, just my 2 cents. Thankyou for a great game.
